What kids ( and everyone else ) really need for Christmas, and the rest of the year, is LOVE, and you can always afford to give them that. They don't need new clothes ( and most kids don't expect that anyway --- its something parents expect FOR their kids ). Of courswe you need to carry on, as the essential source of their love, as well as their need to be able to directly love you. Harming yourself would harm your kids, unnecessarily. And tragically, if you were dead your kids could indeed be neglected, and will surely be much less happ[y than with you alive, however poor. Keep trying --- you have skills and experience and will be able to find a good job, even if not immediately. And check local government hospitals and clinics and medical schools for possible free therapy and counselling to help you through this difficult patch. In time to come, you and your children will have some great Christmasses together

I' m a mother of four and I know how demanding small children can be. And how bad it is to have money problems as well. Your children need you and there is hope for you all. Things can change in the new year. Just hold on and be patient. And don' t give up.

Now that is not true and you know it. How are your children going to grow up without their mommy. Someone may help financially but they will have no mother. No one can fulfil that need. You are needed, your strength and courage will pull you through this rough time just like it did last year. Dont give up - your children do not deserve to grow up without their mommy and it is not your right to take that away from them. Get your CV together and put it out on the internet on pnet dot co dot za. Dont just give up. You can do this - if not for yourself, but for your children.
